Description Michael[tm] Smith 2008-12-22 07:34:08 CET
The spec essentially defines the values of the hyperlink attributes -- href, target, ping, rel, media, hreflang, and type -- in a common section[1] independent from the particular elements they can be used on. And though the schema currently has separate per-element pattern definitions for all the hyperlink attributes, the separate definitions for a particular attribute all define it with the same datatype.


Anyway, that's all just a roundabout way of saying that it would seem to make some sense to instead define the attribute using a "shared-hyperlink.attrs." pattern prefix (instead of a per-element prefix) -- similar to the "shared-form.attrs." case.

Note that the part of this patch that changes the embed.rnc file duplicates part of the patch 28 for bug 365:

I couldn't figure out how to generate a diff minus the patch 28 changes. So because of that, the embed.rnc part of this patch will currently fail to get applied under any circumstances; it will fail both if patch 28 has not been applied and if it has been applied.

If/when patch 28 is applied, I can (if you want) generate an updated patch with just the changes for this particular bug.

I had deleted area.attrs.alt by accident; this restores it
